Selling for cash was way better than buying through a real estate agency

I absolutely hate working with real estate agents. When I was young I bought all my rental properties through real estate agents. It was such a nightmare coordinating with them. They didn’t have any knowledge or skills. They basically just facilitated contact and took a hefty percentage of the sale. I always felt they were totally worthless. So years went by and I decided that it was the time to sell my rental properties. I didn’t want to be a landlord anymore. I wanted to buy a beach shack and retire with my wife down south. I didn’t even bother looking at Portland real estate agencies. I just looked for people who say they buy homes for cash, or local home buyers. It was a way better experience selling to cash buyers in the Portland area. They didn’t require me to do anything. No repairs, no remodeling, no staging, and the beast had no hidden fees. I liked how quickly the process was as well. With a real estate agent you are contacting and coordinating for months. You are trying to get in touch with them and having no luck, the cash home buyer and I had a two day conversation and then all my places were sold. We agreed on price and I just signed everything over. It was that easy. I can’t recommend doing cash sales more to rental property owners. It makes it less stressful. Hopefully I never have to sell a place again, but if I do, I am contacting that Portland cash home buyer for sure.
